The Bayou Bowl is an annual high school football all-star bowl game in which the best graduated seniors from Texas and Louisiana play against each other. It has been played at Stallworth Stadium in Baytown, Texas, since it began in 2003.

Bowl History

The game was conceived as a join collaboration between leaders in the Baytown-Houston area, including the Baytown/West Chambers County, TX Economic Development Foundation, the President of the Baytown Chamber of Commerce, the incoming chair of the Greater Houston Football Coaches Association and a banker from Amegy Bank in Baytown.

After the initial success in 2003, leaders of the Bayou Bowl decided to donate proceeds to the Shriner's Hospitals for Children in Galveston and Houston. In 2007, the Bayou Bowl raised $33,000 for the Shriner's Hospitals. Most of the money was raised by the Bayou Bowl Celebrity Golf Tournament.[1]
